    HOUSTON -- There were a few tears, actual tears, in the Cowboys' locker room before Sunday's game. Hardly your typical NFL pregame speech reaction.
    But the man standing in front of them is not typical.

    Joe DeCamillis, the Cowboys' fiery special teams coach, was talking about those initial frightening moments after the Cowboys' practice bubble collapsed onto him and others. Players have varying memories of what he said exactly; the gist, however, was repeated verbatim.

    "I had to decide: I either wanted to live or die, to fight or quit," Joe D told them. "I figured I had to do something about it."

    It is a comparison only he could make, lying under the rubble of that facility and where the Cowboys were Sunday, lying in the rubble of an 0-2 start. But when Joe D talked about them having a choice to make in the ensuing hours in Houston, the message reverberated with every man in that room and stayed with them as they took the field.

    IF the Cowboys play with this type of fire the rest of the season it's going to be problems for the NFL.

    yeah it was one long shot at Wade but whatever. Who cares about what a bunch of embittered media types think, all that matters is whether the Cowboys win or lose.
